Features intricately detailed, bas-relief collage spreads of dwellings in other world regions and historical times to explain how different people live and have lived--from a village house in South Africa that tells the story of its family to a floating green house in the Netherlands. 20,000 first printing.
A colorful variety of luxurious modern homes that combine modern technology with frequently exotic materials, a continuity of indoor and outdoor space, and an eco-conscious sensibility is captured in more than two hundred full color photographs that document the work of such acclaimed designers as Oscar Niemeyer, Geoffrey Bawa, Gio Ponti, and Isay Weinfeld. 10,000 first printing.
At Mommy’s house, Alex has a soft chair. At Daddy’s house, Alex has a rocking chair. In each home, Alex also has a special bedroom and lots of friends to play with. But whether Alex is with Mommy or with Daddy, one thing always stays the same - Alex is loved. The gently reassuring text focuses on what is gained rather than what is lost when parents divorce, while the sensitive illustrations, depicting two unique homes in all their small details, firmly establish Alex’s place in both of them. TWO HOMES will help children - and parents - embrace even the most difficult of changes with an open and optimistic heart.
